What countries have the biggest problems with poaching?

    Central Africa is area worst hit with elephant poaching. In these area poachers really have an easy task in hunting down the animals because of frequent civil wars, overall corruption in many countries, and inadequate laws and lack of government control. Poachers are not only local people but most importantly well organized international poaching gangs as high profits have attracted the interest of many international crime organizations. Laws in Africa are anything but strict, and wildlife protection even weaker which makes poachers a lot easier job. Ivory trade is one of the most important branch of wildlife trade, and some estimates say how tens of billions dollars are made each year from wildlife trade, especially in times like these where demand is constantly growing. If current rates of elephant killing are about to continue in years to come in less than 15 years elephants will disappear from most of sub-Saharan Africa.
